It's Hard Being a Parent for the First Time, Yet It's a Lovely Journey

Last Updated on

Sometimes, it can get really difficult to be a first-time parent. I am a mother of a cute little baby boy of 18 months old. It’s a lovely milestone journey, with lots of ups and downs, both as a parent and as a wife. It’s difficult to be successful in both the fields, and for me, it was a hard time. As a wife, I was not perfect. I used to have lots of problems in my own life, though my partner tried his level best to entertain me and make me happy. But my pregnancy was a very difficult time for him.

My baby didn’t have much problems, like I did, during my pregnancy. I had to leave everything behind for my child. Sometimes, I use to skip my bath, my food, and even my dreams for the little one, because I feel these are the best days of my little one, and I don’t want to skip a moment and let it go. But there’s a great saying, which goes, you have to lose something to gain something. I think it’s a fact. I left all my dreams, and created a new one with my muchkin. He has stolen my heart.

I used to do lots of experiments with him. Being a parent for the first time, I don’t know exactly what is good and bad, and how it will affect my baby, but still, a mother is a mother who tries all her best to give her baby everything.

My love for him grew gradually. Some say that a mother can love her baby as it comes into her womb. Well, that’s a fact, but practically, it grows from time to time, as you see your baby grow! One can’t love anyone in a moment.

This is a short story about myself, a mother who is always trying to be perfect, but is still not.
